"Shoddycloth", a David Feltham designed fractional rig with fin keel and spade rudder. Purchased by current owners in 2013 and has undergone extensive work, new standing rigging, and replacement engine. Rigging was replaced in 2015 before vessel was taken out of the water in 2016 for refit, returning to the water in 2022 - during refit, all rigging and sails in dry storage.
A good fun boat and capable cruiser racer. Fitted out by original owner who sailed the vessel extensively in the Balearics. Current owners have sailed Shoddycloth primarily in the Firth of Forth, as well as a round Scotland trip through Caledonian, Crinaan and Forth and Clyde canals.
